I'm generally a pretty upbeat, happy dude.
I love life in the Gorge. I also visit Portland often to see family and friends and stuff my face with the best breakfasts.
I've traveled quite a bit in Asia, Latin America, and Europe, and lived in South Korea for a year and a half. I'm now working on traveling more domestically, exploring the many state and national parks in the western U.S. My ideal vacation is not one of rest and relaxation, but rather one of adventure, activity, culture, nature, beauty, and excitement.
I've been chewing on this article recently. Feel free to message me your thoughts: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/29/opinion/sunday/why-you-will-marry-the-wrong-person.html?_r=0
I'm looking for a partner to enjoy life with. I'm looking for the real deal.
A small glimpse into my world of music: I'm loving Jose Gonzalez's new album and am very much looking forward to Radiohead's new album. Gregory Alan Isokov is my current favorite singer/songwriter, but will always have a deep admiration for Paul Simon. Broken Social Scene is some of my favorite driving music. Nirvana was my childhood hero, Zeppelin never gets old, Norah Jones's voice soothes me, and I will dance to anything funky.
NPR: Radiolab, TED Radio Hour.
Food: I like food. Preferably organic, trying to eat balanced.
And hopefully my weekend is spend outside having adventures.
I am looking for a partnership in which we can laugh our asses off together, try new things together, teach each other new things, push each other to be the best we can be, support each other through tough times and crummy days, enjoy music and arts together, enjoy nature together, get dirty together, expand our horizons together. That's all. :-)
